    Okay folks, time to crank this bitch up. Come one, come all. This is the first full season of the WWE PPV pick'em. We start with Payback and end with Wrestlemania 33. I'll post the card, you post your picks. Most points wins, simple as that.


    Rules:

    Select an outcome for each match on the card by selecting:
    1) The correct selection of the match's winner scores a single point
    2) The correct selection of method of victory (pinfall or submission) scores an additional half point.
    3) The correct selection of method of victory by disqualification scores an additional full point.
    Method of victory points are only awarded to you if you also selected the winning wrestler.

    Most points wins.

    This will be the thread where the rankings are posted. I'll make a thread for each ppv as they're announced. The only matches to select from are the ones that are posted by me in that thread's OP. I will publish the full available card, but sometimes they slide extra shit in that we aren't aware of until we're watching the event live. I'll continue to add matches as they get announced, and change them altogether in the event WWE decides to switch up already announced matches.

    In the event you're adding other matches to existing picks, please edit your original post to make my life easier when wading through.

    The overall season winner will be awarded:

    *this picture may not represent the actual trophy.

    I'm going to try to get us some other little prizes along the way. Unfortunately the Pro Wrestling departments budget is a little lean, lol.

    As always, if anyone has any questions feel free to post them in here, or PM me. Most importantly, have fun.

    One other thought I had. Would anyone here be interested in putting a small amount of money up and winner takes all? or possibly half and we donate the other half to a good cause?

    I'm thinking we can do it one of 2 ways, either a winner takes all. Or (the option I would prefer) would be a 50/50 where 50% of the pot goes to the winner, and the other 50% becomes a donation to a charity in the name of TMMAC's Pro Wrestling Forum.

    I also really want to actually get that trophy to award for whoever wins this thing, lol.

    I'm good for $10-$20
    Like the idea of a donation in the forums name.
    Have to recommend Justin Wrens fight for the forgotten charity.

    I'm thinking $20 might be a better amount if it's doable for people, but yes, one time buy in for the whole season. $20 doesn't seem too steep when you think about it that way.

    Food for thought. We get 10 people on and the winner takes home 100 bucks, and we get to make $100 donation on behalf of the site. Obviously the more the merrier. :)

    $20 is a stretch for me considering i'm looking for a job, but it's doable. I wouldn't mind paying it.
    Also, is this just main roster or are we including the NXT Takeovers?
    Also, can we do a special for the cruiserweight series?

    I'm pretty broke at the moment so I'll have to pass on the cash front. If that's the direction it takes good luck guys : )

    I'm thinking everyone will be able to play regardless of whether or not people are putting money up. It'll just change whether or not you can win the money.

    so would the closest paying runner up win the money then? if someone who couldn't pay won? or would it all go to charity? or something else?

    Exactly. Highest point total who paid claims the cash prize. Overall winner claims the bragging rights. I like the idea of there being a cash prize, and the possibility of us giving something back, but I don't want finances to be a barrier to entry. I think everyone should be able to participate.

    As of right now it'd just be for main roster PPV's, but we can certainly look at expanding it. Particularly where we get into Network specials like last year's 2 (from Tokyo and Toronto)

    I'm in! $20 for the whole season sounds good.

    What is the first PPV we're picking the winners for?

    Depending on how quickly we can get people assembled, Payback will be the opener.

    Sounds the most logical to me. Would everyone be willing to have @Wild@Wild be the escrow? He's got an honest face. Assuming he's willing to help us out of course.

    Give me his paypal and I'll pay him. Also, there are some confirmed matches.
    Roman Reigns (c) vs. AJ Styles for WWE WH Championship
    The Miz (c) (w/ Maryse) vs Cesaro for IC Championship
    Sami Zayn vs Kevin Owens
    Dean Ambrose vs Chris Jericho
    Charlotte (c) (w/ Ric) vs Natalya (w/ Bret Hart) for Women's Championship
    Enzo and Big Cass vs The Vaudevillains for #1 Contendership to the Tag Team Titles.

    I'm just excited to start. so yeah.
    Oh and this isn't confirmed yet but supposedly the winner of the #1 contendership match will face New Day for the titles on the card too.
